Burlington, ON, Canada – September 17, 2014 – Astrix Networks Inc., operating as Memex Automation (TSX-V: OEE) (“Memex” or the “Company”), the global leader of manufacturing M2M productivity solutions, is pleased to announce the Company will present at the Cantor Fitzgerald Technology Conference held at the St. Andrew’s Club & Conference Centre, Toronto, Tuesday September 23, 2014.
Memex substantially improved the Company’s sales pipeline at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) during the week of September 8 – 13, generating more than 800 qualified sales leads. IMTS is the largest manufacturing technology trade show in North America. Held every two years, the 30th edition of IMTS attracted 114,147 registrants and 2,035 exhibiting companies from 112 countries. MERLIN, Memex’s MTConnect hardware and software solution, was featured 11 times by the trade press at IMTS.
“This was our most successful IMTS ever,” said David McPhail, CEO. “Mazak, the world’s largest machine tool manufacturer, demonstrated MERLIN running live throughout their 800,000 square foot plant in Florence, Kentucky.” Hundreds of major manufacturers witnessed a thorough demonstration of MERLIN at both the Mazak and Okuma booths. Many said to McPhail that “if it can generate productivity similar to Mazak’s published improvements (+42% utilization, July 28, 2014, Automation.com), then that’s good enough for us”.
